Sankshema was registered as a Charitable Trust in March 1990. After a brief socio-economic survey, the trustees decided that the primary aim for the trust should be Medicare, specially focused on cancer awareness, detection and treatment. In addition to Medicare, the trustees decided to provide scholarships to the economically deprived rural students to help them pursue higher education. All capital expenditure of the trust is met through donations from individuals and organizations. The charitable trust is an initiative of the Kapil Group. All donations are exempt from income tax under 80g of the Income tax act.
Sushruta Cancer Hospital
After the charitable trust was established, the trustees as per their stated objectives, decided to start a Cancer Hospital to serve rural poor. Sushruta Cancer Hospital named after the famous ancient Indian surgeon “SUSHRUTA” was set up in Karimnagar district of Andhra Pradesh in 1992 with a capital cost of two crores. Costs involved in treating cancer are prohibitive. Getting treatment for the disease in big cities is expensive, with cost of boarding and lodging being closely equivalent to the entire cost of treatment.
Sankshema Scholarship Scheme
In 1999 the Sankshema trust decided to collect donations from individuals and organizations to sponsor students with merit from economically deprived rural communities to complete their studies by providing them with financial support. The scheme commenced in 1999 with 14 students in the fields of medical, engineering and commerce streams.
